Ceres Gallery presents Michelle Stone today was tomorrow yesterdays

Time will not leave us unscathed
Hold obscure buried secrets and treasures-
Excavating stolen dreams and transforming them yet
Frozen from too many choices and rickety definitions,
Forgotten joys melted in the cracks
Hidden in light and eroding in shadows
They are Not named but seen- remembered and twisted
in deep and shallow holes and absolutes-
Stray feral thoughts unattached
Love of decay and fresh mold – yes growing color
Fear of rebirth and ghosts of regret …
Begin and End Reflections and Echoes

Textured layers of matte and gloss paint invigorate the images and content in the work of Michelle Stone. She constructs an ecosystem of hybrid forms, characters and shadows that inhabit ominous landscapes and emerge from or fade into dark, ambiguous places. Stone’s depictions whether abstract or explicit, portray themes of conflict, adaptation, and the interconnectedness of the natural world. Her sculptures, installations, and paintings may strike a person as unsettling as they teeter between grotesque and whimsical and urge viewers to explore and examine the recesses of their interior worlds. While critics have described her work as “brazenly personal,” her stated objective is to capture the inevitability of development and deterioration, the “organic process that we share with all living creatures – growth, transformation and decay.”
